    I should also cite AndrewBaker as a competent, long-term contributor. Sorry for the oversight.

    If memory serves, when Rachel Granby led WSBNKN, there was a more civil discourse centering upon financial items with very few sidebars. Then near the end of the first 0bama campaign cycle, more political items began to appear and WSBMKN became more fractious (President 0bama tends not to be a uniter of all Americans). Yigal took over for Rachel about this time, but since his departure the older posters have stopped participating, people like Old Trader, Tack, Market Guy and Left Field (who I believe was the longest poster here).

    Carlini is the single-most valuable addition to the board, since the old-timers vacated, imo. He gives a clear, concise and mature contribution virtually every day. Even so, a few people will personally attack Mr Carlini. Evidently, there are people who wish to sow discord anywhere they visit on the world-wide-web.

    Counting the number of times words appear in a single day's edition seems to me an invaluable time-sink.

    One hothead fundamentalist with a number of nukes could do serious damage to the environment. Might even change the climate.

    "Countering allegations he [Corzine] was lax in his oversight, Mr. Corzine’s lawyers say he delegated tasks to competent personnel and 'no principle of law or logic' supports the CFTC’s position that he should be held to account for everything that went wrong."

    A young PM by the name of Trudeau would be my guess.

    [crademan: "Spald_fr, Martin O'Malley (52), Lincoln Chaffee (62), Larry Lessig (54), Michael Steinburg (56), Doug Schreffler (55), Robby Wells, Jr. (47) are all Democrats flying under the radar ...]

    O'malley unelectable; Chaffee a former RINO now a D; who?; who?; who?; who?

    Flying 'under the radar' means preventing one's position from being leaked out.

    Clearly, the younger candidates have fulfilled their mission.

    OK, you win. Debbie Wasserman Shultz is under 65. She's physically beautiful and has a terrific speaking voice and accent. And so reasonable!
